Tales of Triumph

I am finally retiring my Asics Gel running shoes. In the world of running I wore these puppies well past their prime. I have had them for almost a year… and I run almost every day (don’t tell any of the hard core runners… I am sure they would find it blasphemous). They (whoever “they” are) recommend runners to change their shoes about every 3-4 months! Yet these sneaks have served me well, we ran a lot of races together, saw a lot of sites… jumped in a lot of puddles and achieved many goals.

Out with the old and in with the new… Meet my new shoes, The Saucony Triumph 6! Oh they just sound like winners (or finishers I should say, I don’t have a chance to win a marathon I am in the business of finishing). I fell in love with these little babies at Run-n-Fun in St. Paul, which I might add is runners paradise and it was all I could do not to buy everything in the store.

I did get some other much needed gear… including a new waterproof running watch (lime green), some Runderware as I like to call it, running socks which keep your feet dry, and Energy Gels for long runs (Chuck and I are going to experiment with which ones we can stand… it is pretty tricky to eat a packet of goo while you are running without feeling nauseous) These all may seem like little things but they make a huge difference!

Just to keep you up to date we are in week 4 of training already, that means only 13 weeks left until the big race. Our long runs are up to 10 miles… and total mileage so far for training is 49 miles!!
